    If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

    Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

    Please go here and download startuplist 1.52 :-

    Hi

    You have a lot of programs running at startup that you do not need to - you could just start a lot of them manually when you need them

    There are one or two things in your startup I'm not sure of, unfortunately it's nearly 1am here and time I logged off for the night

    One possibility - C:\Program Files\LeapFTP\LeapFTP.exe

    could this be downloading files which you have queued ?

    Other programs such as this could be downloading updates - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\evntsvc.exe

    good luck

    This startup is totally suspect:

    Supastatus = C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard\status.exe

    There is NO Internet Explorer file called Status.exe.

    Go to Start > Run > Msconfig,and uncheck this one on the Startup tab.

    Click OK, close Msconfig and reboot.

    Next, go to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard, and rename status.exe to status.bak

    And I'd like a copy of that file for analysis, please.

    Would you mind terribly sending me a (zipped up) copy of Status.exe (or Status.bak) for analysis?

    I'd be vey grateful for that file. I'll PM you with my e-mail addie.

    TIA! :)

    I would bet on TkBellExe, part of the Real that gives you live updates

    Yup, it says it's from "Supanet": http://www.supanet.com/

    Appears to be harmless, but I would leave it unchecked, as I doubt it needs to be running.

    It may even be responsible for that internet activity you've been noticing.
